About Us

Galileo Global Group Values

What We Do

We provide cross-border financial and strategic advisory services at the board and executive-suite level on topics such as corporate strategy, succession planning, and corporate development for companies in Europe, Asia and North America.

On the transactional side, we have an exclusive focus on small / mid-sized private assets. We provide private placement and M&A due diligence and transactional services to emerging growth companies, (quasi-) institutional investors and corporate development teams. Many boutique firms can lay claim to being specialized in small and mid-sized transactions. Many large investment banks can claim to have global capabilities. Galileo Global is uniquely positioned to offer its clients a truly global service in the small- to mid-sized transaction space.

Finally, we provide fund placement services for General Partners active in private asset categories including Venture Capital, Private Equity / Credit, Real estate, and Infrastructure. These funds are rigorously screened based on criteria such as performance, tenure and sector focus in order to maximize the chances of excellent future performance for their prospective investors.


Galileo Global Group was founded on October 1, 2003 by Georges Ugeux. After a decade at the New York Stock Exchange, Mr. Ugeux experienced a lack of trust between investment banks and their clients. Galileo Global Group and its partners work as trusted advisors on international matters, utilizing their experience, knowledge and networks to find solutions. Galileo’s two entities, Galileo Global Advisors and Galileo Global Securities offer CEOs, Boards of Directors and Governments independent advice on international business development, restructuring, compliance and capital market issues.


Galileo Global Group delivers value to its clients by embracing their objectives as our own. Our practice is built on a set of core principles:

Galileo provides unbiased information and seasoned professional advice to senior-level decision-makers.

Our team has access to decision makers at global companies, governmental agencies, private equity firms, banks and regulatory institutions, enabling us to expand the potential value of your business objectives.

We understand that “one size fits all” does not work for every client. We listen, study, advise, innovate and work to optimize your opportunities and ensure that you achieve your goals.

We provide a confidential sounding board to test and validate ideas and decisions with unbiased advice and information.

Your success is our success, and we work with you to ensure that you meet your goals and overcome the challenges presented by cross-border and cross-cultural elements in today’s global economy.
